What to do if I want a small baby so I don't get too fat during pregnancy. How can I choose my babies size?

What to do if I want a small baby so I don't get too fat during pregnancy. How can I choose my babies size?

The amount of weigh you gain is up to you, as long as baby is growing properly. The uterus returns to normal size, when the baby is out. What you should be asking is, what is the best way to eat to get a healthy baby!!!! Get your priorities straight. ...Read more

If a baby has a rather large head, would it be possible for their body grow for their head size?

If a baby has a rather large head, would it be possible for their body grow for their head size?

Yes.: Weight varies with height. But head size has nothing to do with height or weight. So although it is possible that someone's body could grow to match their large head, there is no guarantee it will happen. Further, the percentage of your body length that is your head is about 30% at birth, but only 10% as an adult, so babies tend to have bigger heads than adults. ...Read more

Need to examine: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without examining the lesion. What you described suggests a wart. You may wish to try over the counter treatment for a wart, if that does not help, it would be useful to see a doctor.
